Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

Kylie was great.....she shared some great touring tips and was extremely knowledgeable about history and wine and .......!!! Super lunch at winery and great walkaround tours of small villages, abbey, etc. Well worth doing as a relaxing and yet exciting day out of Rome.

A trip of a lifetime, I know this is so common to hear, but it really was. I had wanted to travel to Italy since I was a teenager. At the ripe old age of 53 my opportunity arose. A trip to Rome was so close to Tuscany we had to go. This tour was a great touch of Tuscany. From the tour in Montalcino amongst the stone buildings and narrow cobblestone streets, hearing an aria sung by a Opera singer from the school, to Brunello wine at lunch in the winery. The final stop was in Pienza home of pecorino cheese! Our guide Becky was extremely knowlegdable of all things Italy. Her bachelors degree made our trip so fulfilling! I would highly recommend this day tour to anyone who wants to get a real italian experience in Tuscany.

This was one of our favorite days in Italy, where we got to see the Tuscan countryside by bus, visit 2 medieval hill towns Montepulciano and Pienze, have a great lunch/wine tasting The Pici with tomato and garlic was awesome at a winery and get a lot of great tips/knowledge from our tour guide Mara. I would highly recommend taking this tour if you have extra days in Rome and want to get out of the bustle of the city. Mara a Roma local was a great guide, very energetic and engaging with the group!
